Changes to OHIP+ Effective April 1, 2019

OHIP+ Amendments Take Effect April 1, 2019

The Ontario government is making changes to its OHIP+ Children and Youth Pharmacare program, as you know. The changes affect Ontario residents aged 24 and under, as follows:

  • Those with prescription drug coverage under a private plan will access prescribed medicines through their private plan, as they did prior to the launch of OHIP+
  • Those with no private coverage remain eligible for drug coverage under OHIP+. They will continue to receive benefits from the Ontario Drug Benefit program with no co-payments or deductibles.
